ticket. but the pair is accused of scamming the real winner out of the jackpot. steve osunsami is here with the latest on that. >> here's why when you have a clerk check a lottery ticket to see if you won, you should sign it first and then ask for it back. two brothers scammed one of their customers out of a winning tick ticket. and then, tried to claim the prize. andy ashcar claims he bought that winning ticket himself, in 2006, at a syracuse convenience store where he worked. and then, waited six, long, years to split the money with his brother. >> i would hope that at some point in the last six years, he had been convinced that she did marry him for love. >> reporter: lottery officials say that was the first clue. love or not, no one waits that long to claim $5 million. >> $5 million. >> waited until now. >> reporter: but they put out a detailed press release anyway, hoping it would lead them to the winner. prosecutors are calling the brothers cheats and crooks, saying they swindled the ticket from a poor, old customer, authorities are calling john doe. a hard-working 49-year-old fa

." during the gop primaries, steve colbert started his own super pac. it was a spoof, of course. with karl rove facing backlash from his donors, who expected a vastly different return on their investment in mitt romney and other republicans, colbert offered up a response to his own donors. >> karl is in big trouble. they're going to take his thumbs. and karl is almost all thumb. i took a lot of money for my super pac and my 501c-4 colbert super pac s-h-h, which stands for shh. okay? money from some anonymous scary donors. that's not pixilated. that's his face. listen, fellows, i didn't waste your money. running a super pac is expensive. i mean, we had legitimate costs. we had handling costs, and we had legal fees, and the biggest expense, almost $90,000 of it was for the commercials the super pac ran while i was kind of sort of running for president of south carolina. i wasn't even in charge of the super pac then. >> in his home state of south carolina, of course, colbert was at one point polling ahead of a legitimate candidate, jon huntsman. >>> next, people in the other -- over 30 states

, steve? >> is this japan? >> they shouldn't be increasing the quota? >> why? >> because they have no idea about the stocks. they try to pretend there's one stock in the mediterranean, one stock in the atlantic, they have no idea. it's bad data leading to bad decision. >> if earn to take this conversation, you know what it would lead to? the tragedy of the commons. >> good point. >> when there's ownership of something, you conserve. when anybody -- everybody going after the same thing, they figure if i don't do it, somebody else is going to do it. if you own timber, every time you take down a tree, you plant two more. >> much better about protecting the resource and the europeans contend they have their own stock. but we've shown through the tagging data that these fish go across the mediterranean to the atlantic, up and down the coast, it's an extraordinary fish, a good one to preserve. >> okay. >> okay. >> let's go back to steve since you're there. you've got an interesting report, and i promise you i'll be listening very carefully about the fiscal cliff and who is going to be impacted.

] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things like what the market is doing and being ready no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >>> does the president see this in general as an unwelcome distraction at a time when he's just reelected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> well i certainly think wouldn't call it welcome. >> that was jay carney today, trying to explain how the president feels about the mess that is the petraeus affair. in the spotlight tonight, another day, another four star general investigated. this time it is general john allen who took over as commander of the u.s. forces in afghanistan and petraeus became director of the cia. in october allen was also nominated by the p
to immigration. >> i was an immigration lawyer for 15 years, so as a conservative voice i understand what steve is saying, but i think we have to realize as republican party that we're never going to be a majority party if we don't figure out a way to reach to the hispanic, to reach the hispanic community. so we have defined what i call, and i been talking about this for two years but where to find a conservative consensus on immigration. we have to figure out how steve and i are going to sit and agree on a bill, and people at this table that will actually do something about a broken immigration system. one of the biggest things can service talk about often is that we want to fix a broken government. well, if you know anything about immigration law, the immigration system is absolutely broken in the united states. we need to get away that people can come to the united states to a legal system. we have to do something about border protection, i'm a big fan doing something with e-verify. all those things we have to do, but at the same time we have to forget what we pashtun we can't keep punting t
, working with steve israel to make sure we had the intellectual, financial, whatever resources to prevail in those races. my second time that i spent was to call people who were not successful in this particular election, because everybody here was getting a lot of calls. winning is very noisy. not succeeding is -- the bells don't ring that much. so i wanted to hear from them, what their views were about how we go forward. and then to absorb the calls of my colleagues to see what their view is. but i -- what i talked about here about changing the role of money and politics is really a very important motivator for me to stay in the leader's office. i think it must be done. when people say that, oh, and i read in the course of this week, money didn't make any difference in the campaign. they alwasted their money. well, that really wasn't true. the president of the united states, the most well-known famous respected person on the planet had to spend about $1 billion to set the record straight from what that other big money was putting out there. senate races, house races. tammy douglas had $
of the ryan plan. my overall point is, and unfortunately we have not seen this in the past few years, steve is coming more from the right than from my side, but the overall bank is that both sides are born to half to be willing to take on a significant amount of pain. i hope the willingness is there in order to make the grand bargain as they say. a great show, thank you very much host: thank you. guest: adding the caller makes a great point. for there to be a compromise, with the want to say is they want to see them change the entitlement programs. these are medicare, medicaid, potentially social security, although there's less clamoring to change that. want to see those programs changed so they are not just these open-ended things were the costs go up. went to see them reforms. so that does not keep adding to the deficit and increasing the federal budget. but the democrats want to see more revenue. want to see higher tax rates, they want republicans to agree to that. for this to be this big grand deal, both sides will have to come to an agreement. host: nancy has a recent story with this h
